Lady Killer

Current Status
In Season

We gave it a C

Through a dating service a lonely and nosy ex-detective (the eminently watchable Rogers) finds a married man (poker-faced Shea) who may or may not be a homicidal maniac, which of course is the risk anyone takes dating. Ladykiller begins somewhat promisingly but quickly devolves into a fairly standard lady-in-peril picture, albeit with a neat twist at the end. But Rodgers never falls for Shea — he merely gets her hormones going — so there’s nothing at stake emotionally here. C
